the senate, comprehensive immigration reform one of them, the enda bill that came out of there, but it's been a tough slog. you've got a few weeks left in the year, and the notion that this is going to be prioritized, there's going to be this push by bipartisan senators to get tougher sanctions on iran when the white house is explicitly saying no to me, that looks -- i just don't understand. is it the case that senators are going home to their states and people are standing up at town halls saying we need stronger sanctions on iran? why is this such a priority? >> listen, you have 47 million americans who have lost food stamp benefits, who are potentially going hungry this holiday season, you have farms that are going to shut down some time next year without a farm bill being passed. you're exactly right, there are bigger priorities. now, what my friends on both sides of the aisle will say is that, no, wait, we need to do this right now so that if the negotiations fall apart some time next year, we're right there immediately with tough, new sanctions. well, the fact is, we can pass

many poor communities. massachusetts has minorities and immigrants and people who are special ed and special needs. yet and still, they're among the top performers in the world. we have to understand that the adults created this system. this is not about the kids who get the trophies but the adults uncomfortable going home with a child who doesn't have a trophy, the adult who doesn't want to sit home and help his or her child do a homework assignment that make up too much of their night. we the adults have to put our children first and create situations in which we push not just the children, but the educators who surround them. too many of us are too comfortable with mediocrity. as a result, as michele said, the rest of the world is moving forward. we haven't dropped. we're just losing in a race because we're not moving forward. >> look, i could talk about this all day. i think it's a fascinating discussion. going be a real talker around the country. steve perry, michelle rhee, thank you so much. maybe we'll do this again and have more, expand on this. it's important stuff. >> talk

had broad bipartisan consensus support, thinking of immigration reform that was not taken up by the house. if they don't pass -- if seven more bills don't get passed out of this congress and signed into law, they would be the fewest passed ever since last year, which is the last congress, only 62 bills that got passed. john boehner will say don't judge us by how many bills we have signed into law but how many bills we've stopped. >> yes, i suspect he would say that. what was the top accomplishment? >> ending the shutdown. it wasn't good for the republican party. it wasn't good for our area certainly. you know, no matter where you are. and i think that's probably -- and that's not a very high bar considering that's the major accomplishment. >> stopping the shutdown may be one thing. people are going to remember who started the shutdown. >> yeah, maybe. republicans would like to point to the website. we've seen just an amazing flip politically in the last three months. >> a lot to watch the next three weeks. >> for more check out first read on nbcnews.com. >>> well, in about six hours

chairman bob goodlatte from earlier today. >> from obama care, to immigration, the current administration is picking and choosing which laws to enforce. >> now, i think when it comes to obama care, the president has been criticized and mr. goodlatte was referring to delaying the employer mandate and other things the president has done because you weren't going to be able to make deadline. what exactly is the authority for the president to decide which parts of obama care to enforce at which date? >> jake, as the representative knows, and us folks during that committee know, the president is using his prosecutorial discretion that's built into the law to make sure there's a smooth implementation of the law. that's part of the function of making sure that you roll things out smoothly and importantly. just have one point to make on the hearings, such as the one today. what is striking is that over the course of the past two months, while we try to fix the website and make sure that the million visits that went on to healthcare.gov, that those people have a good experience and

. again. what about tax reform. they always talk about it. immigration reform. that farm bill is already two years overdue. with all this unfinished business, what are they doing? let me give you a hint. according to "the washington post" only five days are planned in december when the house and the senate will both be in washington. just five days for senators and members of congress to work together and actually solve problems. they don't operate in a vacuum. they can't get work done if they're not both working together or even working. that is a fact. now, that's not to say some are not working. it's the institution that's the problem. the institution has a lousy work ethic. as long as we are content to be the enablers, you and me, it'll get worse. my view, time's up. either they stay in washington for a full month of work in december and prove they really care, or they should be voted out. no questions asked. and regardless of party. if you don't want to work. just go. that's my off the record comment tonight. if you have an important story or issue you think i should take off the re

immigration or fairness in internet sales tax. all of these measures coming over from the senate are literally wilting here, because the committee system on the house side is unwilling to take these measures up. so i think he is looking through a different lens. >> well, your colleagues on the other side of the aisle actually do have an idea that they want to put forward. and it would ease sequestration, a couple measure of the republican house caucus would like to ease sequestration by cutting social security. is that the kind of seriousness that americans are looking for out of congress, or in a way, should americans be kind of glad they're not getting a lot done because that's the kind of thing they want to do? >> well, good point. but that is -- in my view, dead on arrival, both among democrats and in the senate. to somehow say we want to ease sequestration so we can line the pockets of defense contractors and by the way we're going to do it on the backs of senior citizens in this country, is just an anathema, to me and most people in this country, generally, and certainly the de

-- sarajevo as capital. trade and immigration, and each division -- the serbian republic and the bosnian and croatian republic -- would have their own police forces and, basically, run their domestic lives. then we had to sell it, including a peacekeeping force of 60,000, two-thirds of which would be supplied by 25 other countries, one-third by the united states. you heard them talk about that. as i remember, only about 60% of the people were opposed to us participating in that. i say that to make this point. the american people, particularly when they think not all is well at home, have their political leaders to act for them, but they know we have global responsibilities. often times when a proposed course of action is unpopular, it's not exactly like the voters are telling you not to do it, it's basically like a giant blinking yellow light. they're saying, for goodness sakes, be careful, tell us what our objectives are, tell us when it's going to be over, and tell us what it's going to cost. and you better be right. in other words, if you win for america, we to have give you. if you don't

recently particularly as you look at age of individuals and may be involved in immigration and deportation issues. that phenotype is interesting and we are here today for forensics. this is a new little category on this chart. i've been using this lovely chart to teach for years and years and forensics has been added to the chart. in part it has been due in part to the popular culture, obviously loans and all the crime shows that have been on television but also current if ants and hearing about mass graves and the analysis of these remains that are coming from mass conflict have started to make their way into the public reception of the kind of work we do behind the scenes. so what is forensic anthropology you probably get a different definition from all forensic anthropologist because they haven't quite decided on what they are yet. it's a new subdisciplines within physical anthropology and they are trying to carve out a niche for themselves. folks that specialized in just dealing with medical and legal issues in contemporary events. so the folks at jpac and so are individual
